The 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival featured Queer Bathroom Monologues, a play written by Sheila Cavanagh, which was based on based on interviews conducted for her award-winning book, Queering Bathrooms: Gender, Sexuality and the Hygienic Imagination.

The script has undergone further dramaturgical development and makes its mark, bearing its new name, on this year’s WorldPride calendar.

More information is available here. Tickets are available via the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre Box Office.

But don’t worry, the festival schedule and all the other details you’ll need about it are right here. The SOULO Theatre Festival is presented in partnership with the Crow’s East End Performance CRAWL.

The Playwright Project 2014: Caryl Churchill


This year marks the third for The Playwright Project.

The directorial quartet for this year’s scripts, Matt Gorman, Carly Chamberlain, Alec Toller, and Sarah Kitz, gathered to talk about each of their plays(A Number, Vinegar Tom, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?, and Three More Sleepless Nights, respectively) and the playwright responsible for them. It’s the longest and zaniest episode of WalkLeft since the last time Matt was a guest. Coincidence?

All the details you’ll need to secure your tickets can be found here. And there are more details on the project’s website.
